Field trips are arguably one of the best parts about school. Whether you’re going to the Plimoth Plantation to churn butter (for the 10th time) or walking under the whale skeleton that is till leaking oil at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, field trips on the SouthCoast are unforgettable.

A few places are particularly memorable, so we asked the audience which ones stand out for them.

I was surprised to see how many people responded with Sunbeam Bread. According to “Hat Rack,” you got a loaf of bread, pencil box of donuts, and a ruler. Clearly, I am missing out on the goodness that is Sunbeam.

I share a few of the field trip memories with the listeners, like taking in a show at the Zeiterion Theatre and visiting Buttonwood Park Zoo. And who can forget the musical stairs at the Boston Science Museum?

I think the one trip that EVERYONE and their grandmother goes on is the Plimoth Plantation. I thought I learned how to make soap in the third grade, but a listener reminded me that it was butter that we were all churning, not soap.
